According to an unnamed source "close to the studio" who spoke with Kotaku
, lead designer Todd Alderman and lead software engineer Francesco ("Frank") Gigliotti recently resigned from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
development house Infinity Ward. Alderman's LinkedIn profile (seen after the break) corroborates that April was apparently his last month of employment with the studio, though Gigliotti's LinkedIn account appears to be unavailable at this point in time (Kotaku has an alleged screengrab
of Gigliotti's profile that appears to legitimize the claim).
This report comes just weeks after studio co-heads Vince Zampella and Jason West vacated their positions at Infinity Ward
, filed a lawsuit against Activision
, and headed for the Creative Artists Agency
in Hollywood. We've asked Activision and Infinity Ward for an official response and will let you know if we hear anything back.
